Our first competition is the One Ball. This is a charity event entered by most British clubs. It is a series of matches between two players, each of whom have a single ball at their disposal. 12 hoops and the peg are played, which makes for a quick game, so that all comers will have a chance to enter.
Monday 29th April sees our own One Ball (1). As many as turn up on the day will have a knock-out competition, paying £5 each, which is passed on to this year ‘s charity, the Alzheimer’s Society.
Now comes the confusing bit. The September One Ball (2) is actually the first of a series of two, so that the April One Ball (1) is the 2nd.
The winner of each match plays the other and receives a trophy, and both winners go to Surbiton to play winners from other clubs for the National One Ball finals at Surbiton on 12th May.
The really cunning part is that every fiver (entrance fee to the competition) ends up in the hands of the Alzheimer’s Society. Great fun for all of us and dosh to fight this horrid disease for them. Fantastic!
